about me

A bookful blockhead, ignorantly read

With loads of learned lumber in his head,

Fixed like a plant on his peculiar spot

To draw nutrition, propagate, and rot.

Are you kidding me?
I think of it as complying with the Law, which states that your methods must be available to your opponents. If you believe that a local regulation prevents you from making your methods available to your opponents, you should ignore the regulation and follow the Law.

"I'm sure David will try to explain to me again why a bid for which all meanings are alertable is less problematic than a bid for which no meanings are alertable, but I didn't understand the last few times so I doubt I will this time either." "If ...

Sure - any regulation that prevents you from telling the opponents what you play is an illegal regulation and not only can but should be ignored. There are (at least) two ways of going about this: one is to announce all transfers whatever the auction and alert (or do nothing) over ...

NS vulnerable at matchpoints, West described his hand pretty well with his sequence of blue and red cards. But he described it [i]exceptionally[/i] well with in-tempo redouble, in-tempo double, out-of-tempo double. Maybe with a low club and that king-value elsewhere, he would have done what he should have ...

Well, the Law uses the word "subset", so it is simply false that the Law didn't mean "subset". Some here have argued that it means "subset of hands", others that it means "subset of meanings", others still that it doesn't actually mean anything and should be ignored. Henrik ...
Declare or defend?
Declarer draws trumps and plays a diamond. Defend.

Indeed, and that was well played - the spots are given as x's in the diagram, but maybe West's were such that South was sure his shift was a doubleton. Mind you, this raises the disturbing possibility that West could have beaten the hand with spades 3-3 onside by ...
